The second annual Undergraduate Research Symposium will take place at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The one-day symposium, which showcases the importance of undergraduate research in all disciplines, will include poster displays, presentations, student talks and awards. Awards will be given to the top three posters submitted from each discipline. First place wins $400, second place wins $200 and third place wins $100. "The amount of interest that has been shown in the Undergraduate Research Symposium this year has demonstrated that UIC's undergraduates are conducting high-caliber research projects," said Matthew Wettergreen, symposium director. "That interest illustrates a greater need for the integration of research and education at every academic level."
